What's coming next...

Our newest member to the household

We will be at the Cygnet Growers & Makers Market on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month coming up. The next BIG thing for us is the Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards which will be held in August so we are figuring out which categories to enter and what chocolates to make...

At the next Cygnet market we will have lots of festive chocolates available. As well as the ever-popular honeycomb, I'll be experimenting with marsmallow for the season that's in it. We've just inherited some beautiful hens to join our girls so hopefully they will provide the eggs.

Why we love making chocolate

Cygneture has been up and running since November last year. We live in a beautiful part of Tasmania and wanted to start a little business to use the amazing range of produce from the Huon and Channel Regions. Of course our chocolate is not from Tassie but where ever possible we source everything else from here and across Tasmania.

The logo: Richard Mitchell, from Jumpshots, designed our logo with the four swans being my husband and I and our children. Thanks for the website too!
Our location: We have been living in Cygnet since 2006 and have no intention of moving.
Where you can buy our chocolates: We sell at local markets, Cygnet Growers and Makers on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month and at Franklin Market (which is closed for winter).
